Thread: RS3 fast clicking sound

  1. Default RS3 fast clicking sound

    Hi everyone,

    I just bought my dream car a week ago. Nice to meet you all.
    Unfortunately, I have a few concerns with my new ride....One of them is the fast clicking sound.

    Mine is the 2016 pre FL model, when i'm driving with the windows down and close to walls/high objects, I can hear the fast clicking sound from somewhere. Initially, i thought the noise is coming from the tyres. But, after checking, its nothing wrong with the tyres.....

    Interestingly, I can only hear the the clicking sound when I drive next to something where the sound can bounce back, like a wall, guard rails or even the car next to me.
    The noise is really bothering me. Its much appreciated if anyone has any idea to fix the issue.

    Each and every time I had that sound it was a screw stuck in one of the tyres. I've you have checked them and you're positive that's not it I don't know. Does it click faster when you drive faster?

    Thanks for the reply.
    Yes, it does click faster when driving faster.
    I checked the tyres, nothing is stuck.

    thanks for the feedback. So.....does that mean its normal, and there is no way the issue can be resolved?

    I’ve had this happen twice in 2 months. It’s a screw. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Check properly. I missed it 2nd time.
